Heritage Avonlea understands that this is a very difficult time for our residents, staff, family members and friends. We take the COVID-19 Virus very seriously. To minimize the potential exposure of COVID-19 in our communities, we have implemented additional precautionary methods. We want to assure you that we are following all federal and state guidelines in order to protect our residents and staff.
Our employees are going through a screening process daily, to make sure that they are not showing symptoms of the virus before they enter the building. In addition, employees are wearing masks at all time in the facility for an added layer of protection.
At this time, we are requesting that all visits to our facilities be suspended until further notice. Exceptions may apply such as visiting someone in end-of-life situations. Our residents are being monitored frequently to ensure that any resident showing potential symptoms is tended to quickly.
To accommodate the needs of our residents, family members and friends are welcome to coordinate with staff to drop things off at the facilities or set up phone/video calls to speak with their loved ones. If you would like to send a personalized card to a resident, please CLICK HERE.
As of today, we have no cases of COVID-19 in our facilities from employees or residents. We will do our utmost to keep this trend continuing.
This is an evolving situation that we will continue to monitor and respond to proactively. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact our Facility Executive Director or Director of Nursing.
